Robert #2 from "The New Faces" exhibition is to become apart of Reading Museum's permanent collection.

After having exhibited his collection "The New Faces" at Reading Museum for their "Reading Steady Go! Exhibition" which ran from 6th April 2011 until 9th October 2011, Dean Chalkley offered "Robert #2" as a gift to the Museum.

This offer to donate the picture featuring the Reading-born subject "Robert Grindrod" was brought forward to the Reading Museum's acquistion's group.

We've recieved the wonderful news that the committee was unanimous in accepting this offer to add this picture to the Museum's fine art collection.

We are told that the museum's curators are concidering hanging "Robert #2" next to Gilbert Spencer's portrait "Reading Boy" of 1923; Wonderful news!

We'll keep you posted with more news on this soon, so watch this space...
